Yin Yoga All Levels


This class is taught by:

Alexandra Brigham

I came to yoga to increase my flexibility and to spend a few hours a week doing something kind for my body. It took a few years, but yoga grew into something that nourished me not only physically, but mentally and spiritually, as well. As a result, I carry that kindness into all areas of my life, both to myself and to others. After years of practicing and meditating on my own, I have learned to trust my intuition. My focus in all of my classes is to make yoga accessible for everyone. Whether you love to flow with sweet beats, gently stretch to relax, or build strength for your other passions I have a class for you! In all of my classes, I want to teach you how to listen with kindness to your body and to smile while doing it! In my spare time I like to climb mountains, eat cookies and dance like nobody’s watching.

Ann Carroll

Ann Aikya Carroll worked as a Vice President in the banking industry for eighteen years until moving into a position as Director of Marketing and Business Development for an accounting firm. In early 2014 she gave up her corporate career to devote herself to an entrepreneurial spirit that allows her to work from home and devote more time to yoga and moms-to-be. Ann started practicing Integral Hatha Yoga® in the early 90’s as a way to combat stress in her job and personal life. After realizing the astounding benefits relating to stress and the workplace, she chose to attend a four week live-in teacher training at the Satchidanada Ashram near Buckingham Virginia in 2000. Once that program was completed, she began to teach classes in a variety of settings, with the goal of sharing the gift of yoga.

In 2001 she attended another two week teacher training at the same facility specifically addressing bringing yoga into an office or boardroom setting. Subsequent trainings at The Kripalu Institute in Massachusetts and the Ashville Yoga Center prepared her to teach Pregnancy Yoga. She is honored to teach that modality because of the incredible benefits her students have experienced before and after delivery.” She is a 500-Level Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance, a member of the Integral Yoga® Teachers Association and founder and member of The Savannah Area Teachers of Yoga Association (SATYA). She organized Yoga Celebration Day in October, 2004 in Savannah Georgia and Yoga for Peace on September 6, 2006 and September 8, 2007 in Savannah Georgia. Ann has participated on the teaching staff of Savannah Yoga Center’s 200 hour teacher training since the program’s inception in 2007.

As an addition to her Pregnancy Yoga practice, Ann became certified as a childbirth educator in January 2007, a Labor Doula in December 2007 and a Hypnobirthing® Instructor in 2012. Since December 2006, she has been honored to attend and assist many couples as they have brought more that fifty babies into the world.

She teaches classes in group and private settings from the beaches of Tybee Island to Yoga Studios to boardrooms around Savannah.

 
 
Yin yoga targets the connective tissues (joints, ligaments, bones) of the body, instead of the muscles that we focus on in other (yang) styles of yoga and exercise.
Yoga poses targeting the hips, pelvis and lower spine while relaxing the muscles are held for 3-6 minutes to achieve greater range of motion in joints and feel a renewed sense of energy.
Yin is also the perfect compliment to an active/vigorous lifestyle (i.e. running, crossfit, cycling, power yoga, etc)!
 
There are always modifications offered in each posture to make sure you feel comfortable, yet challenged.
